The Government of the UAE pays a great attention to many aspects of life and health of people of the UAE and the tourists, to the environment and the innovations leading to improvement of environmental conditions.
The topic of replenishing natural resources is one of the most relevant at the UAE.
So, United Arab Emirates actively replenished the reserves of mangrove resources over the past decades, as a result of which the UAE became the leader in it among the countries of the Persian Gulf.
According to the report of the King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology, satellite imagery shows that the UAE has become the “home” for 50% of all mangroves growing in the region. Lately the volume of thickets has doubled.
The Ministry of Climate Change and the Environment of the UAE reported that more than 30,000 mangroves will be planted in the coastal areas of the United Arab Emirates as part of the ecotourism development program 2017 – 2021.
In addition, coral gardens will be created from 24 species of coral. The goal of the initiative is to prevent soil erosion and help restore the biodiversity of marine life. Thus, the Ministry contributes to the activities devoted to the Year of Zayed in the UAE.
There is some information for the lovers of nature and entertainment at the open air.
